ATFX’s Trading Accounts
ATFX offers two different account types: the Standard account and the Edge account.
The Standard account is suitable for clients who do not have any experience in the trading markets. On the other hand, the Edge account is meant for more established traders. All account types have leverage options, margin call and stop out levels, and the ability to use Expert Advisors (EAs).
The standard account has a required $200 minimum deposit. The spread is up to 1.2 pips and there is no commission fee.
Edge account has a required $5,000 minimum deposit. The spread starts from 0.5 pips and there is a commission fee worth $3 per side or lot.
A Standard account offers higher spreads with no commission fees. Meanwhile, the spreads are much better for an Edge account but a client needs to pay for commission fees.
ATFX does not charge swap fees, so there is no option to sign up for an Islamic account. However, all ATFX accounts technically conform to the Shariah laws.
Clients who want to get their accounts verified must provide supporting documents.
ATFX offers demo accounts for those clients who would like to practice trading on the platform without investing real money.

“Good Spreads. New, but worth trying out. Good Spreads on Edge acct if you can afford the minimum deposit. Great customer care.”
- The Overseas Trader (February 18, 2018)

“Fair customer support.Good customer support. They helped me several times.”
- Miguel Nully (February 15, 2018)
“I’ve been working with them for the last eight months, but trading CFDs for years. I usually don’t talk to them too much, but when I do, customer support is good. What I like the most is their platform. I’ve got used to it, and now it would be hard for me to change it. Fair spreads for majors. No requotes, no slippage. Maybe some people won’t agree with me, but in my humble opinion, a top3 platform for trading Forex. The only problem is they are a bit expensive in some exotic commodities and not-so-liquid-indices.”
- Edward Don (November 5, 2016)
“Been with a few brokers over the years and these guys stand out simply because of their customer service and support – can’t understand some of the reviews below. In my experience, they’ve always helped me to take on more knowledge and take a much more active role in your trading than some others.”
